. ought to be more exciting than usual. let's see. president obama's state of the union address last night lasted almost exactly 60 minutes, with not quite 7,000 words. it was a little longer than average in terms of word count. the speech was interrupted 83 times for applause, according to a tally by the national journal. there was no notable disruption in the audience this year, no moment like a republican congressman yelling "you lie" the way congressman joe wilson did during the joint address to congress back in 2009 there was no moment like a supreme court justice muttering a rebuttal to the president from the rows up front the way justice samuel alito did in 2010. there was one moment of the speech, though, last night where you heard something from the room. you heard a gasp from the room in response to something that the president said. >> we should follow the example of the north miami woman named desiline victor. when desiline arrived at her polling place, she was told the wait to vote might be six hours. as time ticked by, her concern was not with her tired body or aching feet, b
have president obama's back. he has given us everything we asked for, a really bold plan. he has taken his message to the public. progressives will show him we will get his back on this fight and creates an incentive system where he is bold on every single fight. we're going to be there getting his back every step of the way. >> adam green of, thank you so much. that's "the ed show" show. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening. >> good evening. and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour, where we have breaking news. breaking news about a story we have been covering in detail all this week. and frankly, for a lot longer than that. tonight for the first time, more than a year after its existence was first leaked to "the new york times" after rejecting multiple freedom of information act requests, which eventually became lawsuits demanding its release, after more than a year of refusing to officially either confirm or deny its existence, tonight the president of the united states has ordered release to congress his administration's legal reasoning for why the admi
obama has the power to order the killing of americans in counterterrorism strikes around the world. look at this. ever since anybody knew such a document existed, this is how the administration has been coping with requests to see this document. this is a letter from the justice department telling the aclu that they neither confirm nor deny the existence of the documents described in your request. quote, the fact -- excuse me -- the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such diagnostics is itself classified. that's what they've been saying for more than a year. but now as of tonight, the administration admitted that that legal reasoning memo exists. the associated press first breaking the news late tonight. nbc news confirming it. the president has directed the justice department to give the memo to the intelligence committees in congress. it is the first time that this will have been seen outside the administration itself. now, the administration has openly in speeches and in public comments asserted that it believes it is acting within the law when president obama or some other
that said barack obama or you gave people the option of clicking online on something that said mitt romney, more people would click on the thing that said barack obama. consistently. by a lot. in a controversial article last summer right in the heat of the campaign, an article that acknowledged what everybody else in the media already knew was true, but had not admitted outloud, the website buzz of feed finally put a headline on it and put it up in black and white. mitt romney is terrible for traffic. they mean web traffic. they did what essentially amounted to a control experiment in terms of people's interest online in the two candidates. look. 29 photos of baby barack obama versus 30 photos of mitt romney as a child. essentially, you're offering the same thing. reliably adorable childhood images of people you know now as full grown men. it's the same comparison, apples to apples. the photos of baby obama got just under 70,000 views. the photos of baby romney just over 6,000 views. that is worse than 10 to 1. okay, maybe it's a baby thing. how about if we age them a little. barack obama,
have appeared in an oscar. was this a hit? >> i loved michelle obama, and i thought this was really a horrible idea. it just felt wrong. it felt like another universe entering in there. i mean oscar -- movies are pretend. this was like -- i don't know. all the formality and the guards behind her. and it seemed creepy to me. and pairing her with jack nicholson? >> that was interesting. definitely gave him some cover. but quickly, would it have worked better obviously if she had been there? would it have worked if she was there? >> i don't think she should have been there. she doesn't belong there. hollywood has its own royalty. it has its own first ladies and first men. that's what the evening is about. oh, daniel day lewis, a god, a god. absolutely a god. and he was slightful. he was funnier than seth macfarlane. >> david edelstein, great to have you with us. >> see you next year. >> yes, you will. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening. the only thing that is going to top yours and david edelstein's take at the oscars last n
on getting the george polk award. the 47%, that tape, your story arguably turned the tide for the obama team in the 2012 election. congratulations. and great work on this as well. thank you. >> thank you so much, ed. >> you bet. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. rachel maddow starts right now. raching, tremendous job last night. >> thank you, ed. thank you for being so effusive about it. but also for focusing so much on issues at the heart of it. you've been really, really kind. >> well, it was jaw-dropping. >> yeah. >> you know, you almost feel guilty living through that period. but there were voices on the left, only 23 in the senate that came up with a very courageous vote. i hope it's a lesson to america for generations to come. great work, my friend. >> thank you. i really appreciate it, ed. thanks a lot. and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. as ed mentioned,last night we did air this new msnbc documentary on why the iraq war happened. it has sparked a lot of discussion, particularly the new reporting in the film. we've had a lot of feedback on it. i'm rea
obama. republicans in the senate decided to do something unprecedented to him. and to thereby set an entirely new precedent for how the presidency itself is treated in our country. when they said today that even though they could not muster a majority of votes on their side, they would maneuver anyway as a minority to block president barack obama from appointing his chosen secretary of defense. this has never happened before to anyone ever. i mean, we have had cabinet nominees not make it through the senate confirmation process before. people who could not win over a majority of the senate. so they did not get confirmed. we've had that happen. we've had plenty of people pull their name from contention when it became clear that they couldn't win a majority vote, that they could not win confirmation in the senate. but president obama's nominee for defense secretary, chuck hagel, he does have majority support in the senate. what happened today is that a minority of that body, the republicans, decided that they were going to block him anyway. never happened before. they filibustered a
of president barack obama, who recently introduced some executive and legislative changes that he wants to see before the congress. >> is it going to be hard to get a conviction? >> i don't think that it's going to be hard to get a conviction. as i said, we have two very critical pieces of evidence. we have an unarmed teenager and a man who had a gun. trayvon martin ended up dead. i think that's going to be very clear to the jury. >> how emotional do you think this is going to be? >> i think it's going to be an emotional time for the parents. tracy martin said something earlier today that really stuck with me. what tracy said is to the nation this is a story. and to us this is the grief that we deal with every day, the loss of our son. >> jasmine rand, thanks for your time tonight on "the ed show." thank you very much. >> thank you for having me. >> your trial is expected to start on june 10th. that is "the ed show" tonight. i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, ed, and thank you. thanks to you at home for joining us this hour from wa
? how should the obama administration respond to this? you just saw jay carney. he's been peppered with this a number of times. >> well, frankly, i think they're trying to do a better job than has been done with some previous administrations, republican and democrat for that matter. the key thing is to get on it in a hurry. don't wait. there's a deadline every nanosecond today. so he who waits is lost. if you wait and let the perpetrators of these lies and these frauds ever get a foothold on the internet, you then get into the feedback loop that goes television to newspapers. if you get behind on that, you're lost. >> do you feel the consumer's smart enough to figure this stuff out? >> i have great confidence in the american public and consumers and listeners. that's been my whole experience in television. however, i think they need to be informed of just how widespread this is because there is a residue of people who say, listen, it was in the newspaper, it must be true, or it was on television, it must be true. >> yeah. unfortunately, we're out of time. but i do want to say the d
for her vote in favor of president obama's stimulus plan. abc news interviewed patricia meche very shortly after the shooting. very shortly after the shooting. and here's how she explained that day, what she did. >> i was not able to reach the g gun, gu he was pulling a magazine out of his pants pocket with his left hand, and i was able to grab the magazine because somebody said when he pulled that out, they said "get the magazine." so i got the magazine and was able to secure that. >> the magazine that she's talking about in this particular shooting is this type, the big long type there that you can see sticking out of the butt of the handgun. a standard magazine for a gun like this would not hang out from the bottom of the gun like that. but the one the shooter was using in the tucson massacre had 33 bullets in it. and he expended all of those bullets. he fired all of those bullets, and the gun was therefore empty when he had to stop shooting. had he been able to take the empty magazine out and replace it with the full one that he was presumably pulling out of his pants pocket when patri
president obama to take on the nra for effective background checks and to ban deadly assault weapons. robin kelly for congress, a champion in the fight against gun violence. independence usa pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> a champion in the fight against gun violence. these ads from the bloomberg superpac are ubiquitous now in chicago, on broadcast tv, on cable tv. if you live in chicago, raise your hands. you are seeing these adds constantly. and there is no competing ad to save the i got an a from the nra candidates against whom she is competing. having an a rating from the nra is not an asset anymore. it is a liability. and, yeah, this is not every race. and this is not every part of the country. but this is the first race in america after sandy hook. today as president obama awarded the presidential citizens medal posthumously to the courageous principal and teachers at sandy hook, wiping away a tear today as he awarded them those medals, it was announced today that the new york city teachers pension fund will divest all its money from gun manufacturers. the n
